Jeff Altman’s grandfather had a real enthusiasm for 16mm film. While going through some of the family film archives, Jeff discovered this incredibly colorful and clear film of Disneyland just one year after it opened. There’s even a scene of his grandmother (love her outfit) meeting Walt Disney (who appeared to be filming something in the park that day as well).

While a bit shaky at times, this is one the best videos of early Disneyland I’ve seen. Check it out.
